Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Pittsfield, Maine

Community Minister, Reverend Julianne Bousquet

Community Ministry

Reverend Julianne Bousquet was a recipient of The North American Ministerial Fellowship which enabled her to study theology in the Boston area. She graduated with distinction from Weston School of Theology and the Boston Theological Institute and was ordained by the members of The First Universalist Church of Pittsfield in 2013. Rev. Bousquet was the Hospice Chaplan at Maine general for 40 years. Her compassionate and spontaneous nature makes her uniquely suited for this ministry.

 

Helping Us Through the Transition

We welcome the guidance of each person that fills our Sunday pulpit - from lay speakers to ordained ministers - as we navigate the waters of change. Currently we are a lay-led congregation working to chart a sustainable course for our beloved church. We welcome contract ministers and community leaders to share their insights into spirituality, what it means to be Unitarian Universalist, or how to navigate an increasingly complex world. Here, we love it all.

 

SEEKING STORY TELLERS, LAY LEADERS, & GUEST (&) CONTRACT MINISTERS

The Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Pittsfield is a small congregation looking to grow our as we explore issues that affect life in our mid-Maine communities, the nation, and the world. We have a diverse community and continually seek speakers who can bridge the gap between traditional religions, new thought, earth-inspired spirituality, atheist beliefs, and the challenges of contemporary life and social justice. We look forward to inspirational sermons crafted to uplift and support this community, and in so doing, build it.

 

We are transitioning from our beloved minister of 12 years, and see an opportunity to cultivate a strong, healthy congregation as we move into the future. We are blessed with resilient lay leadership and a supportive Community Minister, Rev. Julianne Bousquet.

If you are an ordained minister or a community leader with a story to tell, we're interested in holding space for you.

What Do Unitarian Universalists Believe?

Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven Principles, grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world's religions. Our spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, nature and philosophy, personal experience and ancient tradition as described in our six sources

The Seven Principles are:

  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
